ASDA’s Like, Here, Have A £40 Blu-ray Player

Blu-ray’s the future, or at least it was five or six years ago.  Now everyone and their dog’s getting in on the HD action but if you’ve got a reluctant grannie or don’t want your kids shoving disks into your PS3, ASDA are here to help.

Just in time for your Christmas shopping, the supermarket giant is offering up a Blu-ray player (which, remember, will play DVDs as part of the tech specs) for just £40.  That’s about the price of a game.  Or a Blu-ray film at HMV.


Don’t expect top notch quality, it’s a ONN DS-BD52 unit, but it sports digital out for video and audio (HDMI and coaxial) and can even be bought in-store, not just online.

“More and more UK homes are now equipped to enjoy the full benefit of high-definition Blu-Ray discs,” said Asda’s  Wayne Steenson stated. “We’re pleased to be offering Blu-Ray players at the lowest price in the market.”

Our brains are melting at the thought of Blu-rays being shoved – at some point in the chain – through a SCART cable.
